Maybe a couple of conditions-of-use for the "Wanted & For Sale" category should be:

1. A seller post immediately when the item is gone.
2. A hunter post immediately when they have found what they were trying to buy.

Saves some trouble for buyers and sellers.

and of course, when posting, please

state 'Wanted' or 'For sale' (or similar) in the title.

And when all done, original poster could (should) edit title, something like 'SOLD' or 'GOT IT' in front of topic title in 1st post.

Slightly less important, but an 'hooray - fixed it' is also nice once proffered advice has been employed and has worked.
